A New New Year Tradition

Just got back from ringing in the new year with Tom Cruise. Man, that samurai movie is longer than I thought!

Our tradition of sleeping through the passing of another year seems to be shot to hell since the Y2K bug skipped over us. Up until then, I don’t recall seeing midnight more than once. But we decided to go to a “Let’s Watch the World Blow Up Together” party with friends on December 31, 1999. We rang in 2001 by seeing a late showing of Fellowship of the Ring. Last year, we had relations. (Visiting us from Maine, perverts.) This year it was back to the movies.

We have no center! We’re drifting all over the tradition map!

Well, I hope you people that actually made yourselves aware of the click of a clock hitting the magic midnight hour had a wonderful time (or will have, for you West Coasters). I’m going to go have my first snore of 2005.

Not counting Tom Cruise, of course.*

*I really loved the movie. Except for the ending. Tell you about it later.

    “Last year, we had relations. “ – *snort* Damn near choked on me champagne that time! Thanks for the chuckle. 😉

    Happy New Year! (again) It’s almost the hour I didn’t think I’d be awake for here on the left coast. G’night! See you next year.

    Happy New Year! You know, we didn’t see each other once in 2003 — gotta fix that for ’04!

    “I’m going to go have my first snore of 2005.”

    Boy, it would be really mean for someone to make a sarcastic remark about that!

    Happy New Year, whenever you are.

    I was pondering the whole 2005 thing, but was thinking perhaps it was a sarcasticaly meant editorial remark on expectations for 2004, sort of an “I’m so unimpressed with life as it currently is going that I figure the best we all can do is just sleep REALLY LATE except I’m timing my first snore for 2005 so that I can wake the rest of you up before I get up so that when I finally decide to take a loot at this particular year, you all will be able to tell me whether or not it’s worth rolling out of bed for, just because I plan that way.”

    Or maybe it was just a typo.

    Stupid fricking baseball league!!! Argh! Kevin knows what I’m talking about…

    Yes, it was a typo. Sorta.

    [snicker] I almost said this last night (2005). Same reason.

    And I wasn’t even drinking!!!

    Happy New Year, Solonor! I just wanted to drop by and say hi and tell you how much I have admired your integrity and wit over the past year. I wish you the very best of the coming year.
